-I am fat
-I am slovenly
-I am lazy
-I am greedy
-Everything is terrible
-Let's just not leave bed ever okay?
So the past few days have been a long slog of actively ignoring Jerk Brain, and forcing myself to do Normal Things, like get up and do yoga and go to work and, oh, I don't know, eat. But I've been managing, and yesterday I sent out a plea to various loved ones to send me pictures of unicorns to cheer me up. I specified that stick-figure squiggles were 100% acceptable.
It worked ridiculously well. And now I'm going to share those unicorns with you, in case you also need cheering up.
My little blessing of unicorns was just freaking miraculous. It made me so happy that my friends cared enough to indulge me in my random demands for comfort, especially since most of my friends don't consider themselves artists. They did something they're not comfortable doing, just to help me out. Now that's freaking magical.
